From: Prevalence of osteochondral lesions in the fetlock and hock joints of Standardbred horses that survived bacterial infection before 6 months of age

  1. aThe proportion of horses affected in ≤2 joints was statistically significantly higher in the sepsis cohort than the SL cohort at p = 0.02. bThe proportion of horses with ≤2 or more lesions was statistically significantly higher in the sepsis cohort than the SL cohort at p = 0.02
